Fatty Fish Ratings and Reviews

I don't eat out much on the Upper East Side yet wanted to meet a friend for a quiet, catch-up dinner on the east side. Time Out had given Fatty Fish a good review, and the restaurant lived up to the acclaim. The food was very good, fresh, flavorful, with attractive presentation; service was unobtrusive and attentive; we sat inside while most diners were out in the garden, so it was nice and quiet and very pleasant. Thanks for a delicious meal with the right kind of ambiance to have some serious conversations.

I thought it was sushi but the menu had changed in March and I didn't look at the menu. The sushi pizza was excellent. Since I was expecting sushi my evaluation of the rest of the menu was that it was food food but fusion and not what I had expected. My error.

First time there, definitely not the last. Everything was excellent, especially the food! Service top notch, ambiance quite nice, and noise level very manageable for our table conversation. The oysters, edaname, and pork bun appetizers were great. Crab cake and salmon main courses were also top-notch. Looking forward to returning to Fatty Fish very soon!

I've been to this restaurant before and have always been satisfied with their food. Tonight we both ordered their salmon entree with honey ginger sauce (I had mine on the side), coconut rice and spinach. This was the best salmon I've had in a long time and the presentation was also excellent. The wait service here is also very good. I'm looking forward to going back for more.
First impressions matter!
I had a wonderful experience at Fatty Fish. It was my first visit, so I was a little leery of my choice for dinner reservations. I was entertaining a relative I've never formally met and wanted to make a good first impression. Fatty Fish did not disappoint! The food tasted fresh, delicious and the presentations beautifully done. We were there for happy hour, so the drinks were half price (and delicious)! I will definitely return!

Where surprised to see how empty this place was compared to our many times we have been there. Seems restaurant lost "it's chore business". Food we selected was good and well prepared. The servers were attentive. We still regret lack of sushi/sashimi offerings. Need a vigorous shake up. Please do not let this place go down the drain.

It was a nice venue with an enclosed, temperature controlled yard. Simply decorated. We were skeptical upon our arrival, because there were only two other people in the entire restaurant, but it got busier shortly after. The wait staff seemed to be a little inexperienced and nervous, but friendly and cordial.
We had the Memorial Day special Asian clam bake, which was delicious. It had a nice sized lobster and shrimps, clams, muscles, potatoes and Chinese sausage. The accompanying ginger butter was amazing. We also had the shishito peppers and the dumpling appetizers, both were delicious and well made. The sangria was good as well. Overall, we had a good experience. We will definitely be back.

Met up with a few friends at Fatty Fish for a get-together. The wait staff was great! They were very accommodating when we were running late and did not rush us at all. Food was fantastic, as always. The bring-your-own wine is a great option as well.
Overall, a great experience

Tried the new ramen seafood dish and was disappointed. They initially forgot the noodles and we sent it back. When the dish returned with noodles the amount of seafood in it was not on par with the price of the dish. Perhaps this was due to the fact it was Mother's Day and the B team chef was in house. We go to this place often this is the first time I was disappointed.
I found this hidden gem at the last minute since my original pick was not able to accommodate 11 people... and boy, am I lucky that things went as it did. The food was excellent and I highly recommend this restaurant if you want to dine as a group or for dates. They even have an enclosed garden area at the back if you want that outdoorsy feel. I would have to give this place an overall rating of 95 out of 100. 2 thumbs up.
Understood from serving waiter, eatery changed management 4 weeks ago; therefore, menu changed - as a result, no sushi, sashimi served at this Japanese restaurant.
Very disappointing surprise, as this was my favorite business lunch spot - will need to look for another restaurant because 'new change in business model.'

We have been patronizing Fatty Fish for about a decade. We were extremely disappointed when we were informed that the Owners decided to discontinue their sushi/sashimi offerings. We understand sometimes changes are needed to maintain decent margins, but we believe it was a mistake to make this change. The new menu is not as extended as the old one, but our dishes were prepared with care and were of a good quality. Service remains very good and Yann, the Manager/Host is always pleasant and very knowledgeable. Not sure we will go as often as we used to due to the lack of sushi/sashimi.

Fatty Fish has been our go-to sushi spot for a long time, so you can imagine how disappointed we were last night when our waiter informed us that the restaurant no long serves sushi. None. Not even a California roll in a bento box. It was late so we stayed anyway and had ramen. The ramen was good but not what we were in the mood for. I hope they bring the sushi back. Meanwhile I guess we are looking for a new go-to.

In the three days between making the reservation and actually going to eat, they completely removed all sushi from their menu with no warning. This was the whole reason we went ( it is called Fatty Fish after all) as it was good Friday so some of our party could not eat meat and sushi would have offered everyone plenty of options. The new menu was mediocre at best and the staff offered no apology or explanation.

It is a nice go to restaurant for neighborhood sushi, I wouldn't be running from afar as there are many sushi winners in NYC in every neighborhood. The sushi Pizza was tasty, and my friend had their version of paella which he enjoyed. I would say it's a good place, but I wouldn't put it on the level of a 5 star restaurant. I would recommend to those in the area! Worth trying, more reasonably priced.
I've been to this restaurant on several ...
I've been to this restaurant on several occasions and was always satisfied with the food and the service. Except for one other table being used, the entire restaurant was empty when we arrived. As a result, one would expect the wait service to be more attentive than usual but it was just the opposite. We had to continuously call the server to get his attention. He never came by to ask if everything was OK. When it was time for coffee, he never came by to ask if we wanted it or dessert. The same for refills. This would be understandable and acceptable in a busy restaurant but for the majority of time we were the only ones there. Not a good sign.

Love this place!! Used to live in neighborhood and went there weekly, but now try to get back as often as possible. The food is great, atmosphere lovely AND the staff is wonderful! And not just good for Japanese food; husband had a pasta dish that was delicious!!
Fishing for a good restaurant
Fatty Fish is a misnomer: there is nothing fat about the food and we enjoyed the fish. Sushi is fresh and superb; but if you are not a sushi enthusiast, there are still cooked meat and chicken helpings that welcome all carnivores. OpenTable continues to impress us with their choices for our dining experiences.
Head east to Fatty Fish!
Definitely worth heading east to Fatty Fish. Very broad menu with small plates and set dinners -- and you can bring your own wine! Edamame with sesame seeds & black pepper were amazing; shrimp shumai were not traditional but very tasty. Set plate with salmon was good; pork belly was ok. Nice selection of sides come with each set plate. Good food, efficient service, and great value.
Menu is a bit eclectic which isn't a bad thing but not as Pan-Asian as expected. Seems like the draw is the fact that most people bring their own wine even though Fatty Fish has a wine list. The food was good but not great so not enough to get me back unless I would want to go somewhere that would allows BYOB.
